Blog note. Jesus indicated that ‘fearful sights’ (various natural disasters) would occur leading up to the time known as the Tribulation and Great Tribulation (a combined seven year period of great destruction on earth). Although these types of things have occurred in the past for centuries and thousands of years, they could be identified as the ‘season of the times’ due to the ferociousness of these events. They would be occurring in greater intensity, severity, frequency, size, duration, scope … just like the pains that a woman experiences in labor the farther along she is in the labor process. We are in the ‘season of the times’ that comes just before the seven (7) year Tribulation/Great Tribulation period
… And great earthquakes shall be in diverse places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven. (Luke 21:11).
… And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; (Luke 21:25)
… Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken; (Luke 21:26)
… This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. (2 Timothy 3:1)
Jesus is giving a series of prophecies about what to look for as the age of grace comes to a close. These verses are several of many such prophecies from throughout the Bible. 2017 was the worst year in recorded history for the intensity, frequency, severity, duration and occurrence of a large number of severe natural disasters worldwide. Earthquakes, volcanoes, hurricanes, typhoons, cyclones, torrential flooding, unprecedented wildfires in unusual places, devastating droughts, excessive/scorching heat setting records everywhere, record snowfalls in Europe and Russia. Snow in the Arabia. This list can go on. Most studied Eschatologists believe these ‘fearful sights’ and massive natural disasters are all part of the ‘CONVERGENCE’ of signs that this Biblical and prophetic age is closing. Most people who study prophecy are familiar with the routine reference(s) made that these things will be like a woman having labor.
A powerful “Monster” bomb cyclone Brendan continues its explosive development and rapid intensification while moving towards the British and Irish Isle: Hurricane-force winds expected
The Big Wobble. January 13, 2020
a powerful bomb cyclone Brendan continues its explosive development and rapid
intensification while moving towards the British and Irish Isles – Brendan is
becoming a *monster*! Central pressure is already below 945 mbar, continues
deepening. Gale force winds are being pushed towards western Ireland, Northern
Ireland and Scotland, while conditions are expected to significantly worsen
through the next hours as the cyclone moves closer.
Expect hurricane-force winds and major waves to deliver life-threatening conditions. Very strong winds and severe gales will impact the UK and Ireland through Monday. A large Atlantic low-pressure system, named Storm Brendan by the Irish meteorological service Met Éireann, will sweep eastwards across Ireland early on Monday, bringing very strong winds to many parts of the UK. Severe Weather Europe
The Met Office has issued a yellow wind warning for Monday afternoon and evening, this covering Northern Ireland and much of the western half of the UK, as well as northeast Scotland. Met Office Chief Meteorologist, Frank Saunders, said: “The UK and Ireland will turn increasingly windy on Monday, as Storm Brendan approaches, and there’ll also be some heavy rain. It’s going to be particularly windy across the western half of the UK, with gusts reaching 60-70 mph along Irish Sea coastlines, the west of Scotland and perhaps some English Channel coasts – maybe even 80 mph in a few exposed places.
This is likely to cause some disruption to sea, road and air travel. “As Storm Brendan moves eastwards, strong winds will also develop across eastern parts of the UK, particularly northeast Scotland where there is also a wind warning in place.” Met Office
